    How low will the new American president go for the world's royalty?

    This photo will get Democrat President Obama a lot of approving nods in Japan this weekend, especially among the older generation of Japanese who still pay attention to the royal family living in its downtown castle. Very low bows like this are a sign of great respect and deference for a superior.
    To some in the United States, however, an upright handshake might have looked better. Remember Michelle Obama casually patting Britain's Queen Elizabeth on the back during their Buckingham Palace visit? America's royalty tends to make movies and get bad reviews and lots of money as a sign of respect.
    Obama could receive some frowns back home as he did for his not-quite-this-low-or-maybe-about-the-same-bow to the Saudi king not so long ago. (See photo here)

    I heard his gift to them was a set of nunchucks. I don't know if it's true, but that's what I heard. ;-)

    Didn't someone at the White house make some lame claim that he was picking up something off the floor when he bowed to the Saudi King? Maybe he is moon lighting as a janitor?

    YOu must read Drudge as well. LOL

    He bowed to a janese person.....what a rebel.

    (This type crap really does hurt the righty's cause in my opinion. It says they will critize EVERYTHING Obama does....everything!)

    Did you hear, he was wearing brown shoes today...BROWN SHOES! We all know what that means.

    Yes, when we kill tens of thousands of innocent men, women and children it's heroic, yet when someone else kills 3,000 of our innocent men, women and children, it's cowardly.

    Ain't it awful; he should have stood tall and straight and called Akihito evil. Didn't his 'kind' bomb Pearl Harbor?
